Speaking points and TV advertisements
We want people to know our grants are only possible because people play our games. Lotterywest supported events, grant announcements, official openings, conferences or gatherings are great opportunities to help spread the word. We have produced some well-known and loved commercials to help people understand that by playing Lotterywest games you’re helping to support the WA community. We may be able to provide you with these commercials to play at conferences or presentations.
Alternatively, you could spread the word! Here are some speaking points to get you started:
- Lotterywest is unique. It is the only lottery in Australia where money raised from the sale of Lotterywest games is distributed directly to the WA community through our grants
- Nearly 1000 different community organisations benefit every year as well as the arts, sports and health sectors
- When you play Lotterywest games the money stays in Western Australia – via grants (including direct grants and statutory allocations), prizes and employment opportunities for locals. Every West Australian is a winner
- In the past financial year, Lotterywest provided $281 million to support the WA community and $541 million went back to WA winners
- Lotterywest games are sold by over 500 small businesses who enjoy celebrating with players when they experience a win, as well as letting their customers know of the great community work Lotterywest grants are able to support

Grant certificate presentations
Grant certificate presentations are a public announcement of your grant made by a Member of Parliament (MP). Sometimes these are simple events such as exchanging a handshake and photograph between your organisation and the MP at the MP’s office. Or it may be a celebration and launch of your project with everyone involved attending. If your organisation has been selected for a grant certificate presentation opportunity we’ll let you know and provide you with all the information you’ll need.
